Ski review Head Chip 66
Very flexible piste ski
The Head Chip 66 is for an easy day on the piste for me. This ski is very flexible and fits short carve turns. It is made for relaxed skiing without doing crazy stuff. For high speed it is a bit of light weight. And for powder i wouldn't take it further out then next to the piste.

I know that my fellow reviewer WJ is very enthousiastic about the Head Chip 66. Reading both our reviews and compare the profiles is proof of how different opinions can be. Both experienced skiers, but very different in approach of the piste. So only you can make your match, we just give our opinion with our own background.

The ski has a chip
The Head Chip 66 has a build-in chip. That sounds nice and interesting. And I am interested in what it does as I didn't feel anything that I can relate to a chip. At high speed the ski stays too flexible and then i want it stiffer. I guess that for the more aggressive skier the Head Chip 66 doesn't deliver as I didn't feel any boost. And for off-piste it is no question of course.
Head about the Chip 66
To Head this is an all-mountain racer apparently. Ok, skiing fast on a slalom is racing as well. All-mountain is this ski for skiers like WJ, but to remind you, he won't take it off-piste either. Furthermore, there is the Intelligence Chip Technology which i mentioned earlier: not a big deal for me. It should use the energy generated by speed to stiffen the ski. Also mentioned by Head is a real rock topsheet. Maybe someone from Head can explain that to me? All in all, the Head Chip 66 is a ski for a certain segment and looks cool, but Head exaggerates a bit while describing the ski according to me.
